In this presentation Geert Lovink, Dutch media theorist, internet critic and founder of the Institute of Network Cultures, will discuss the dark side of the net.

The mental state of internet users is tragic. Instead of empowerment and self-organisation, what we see around us is anger, anxiety and despair. How did we end up like this? “What happens when nothing can motivate you anymore, when all the self-optimization techniques fail and you begin to carefully avoid these forms of emotional analytics?” And how can we reclaim the internet.

In cooperation with WM Martin Beck.
